This month The Home Inspectors was featured in Redfin‘s article, Inspector Insights: What Most Homeowners Miss by Mike Cahill. The article rounded up home inspection experts from all over the country and asked them about some of the most frequently overlooked repairs that homeowners forget to fix.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Some of the pre-sale repairs that are most often overlooked are any item that would potentially be covered under the Home Warranty that the seller may be providing to the buyer i.e. electrical, plumbing, appliances, etc. Any item covered under the Home Warranty that is listed as “deficient” in a home inspection report would be considered a “known” pre-existing condition and NOT covered by that warranty. With this in mind, I always recommend that buyers request these repairs to be made so that they can get the full value of the Home Warranty if one is offered. It is always to the seller’s benefit to remove any potential negotiating points from the buyer. – The Home Inspectors
